Former Mrs. NJ…The Next New Jersey Housewife?
According to Today’s Radaronline post by Alexis Tereszcuk. Some of the N.J. ladies may be getting the axe, and Claire Pavlinec might be the newest addition to Bravo’s The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
Pavlinec is a stay-at-home mother of two and two-time winner of the Mrs. New Jersey title, and this housewife has been seen arm-in-arm with some well-known housewives including Caroline Manzo and former housewife Dina Manzo.
She has also been continuously spotted at events with our very own ‘CelebrityMagnet’ Tom Murro and Real Housewwives Kim G. This group has been seen celebrating with Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi for the reality star’s birthday, attending a Kardashian event in NYC, and watching the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony alongside Donald Trump and Jesse Jackson. Murro and Pavlinec were also special guests for this years N.J. Hall Of Fame Gala.
Pavlinec’s crew lends credibility to the speculation that she could possibly be the next housewife. And who would better represent the Garden State by becoming the next New Jersey housewife than someone who wore the crown as “Mrs. New Jersey?”
Pavlinec’s impressive career started with her being crowned, “Mrs. New Jersey America” in 2007, and on the reality show “Mrs. America Pageant.” She was also crowned “Mrs. New Jersey United States 2010″ and was Top Ten at the national “Mrs. United States” pageant in Vegas. Claire won both state titles by winning both the swimsuit and evening gown categories and scoring high in interview, which helped send her off to the national pageants.
She has been seen side-by-side party hopping with Tom Murro and Kim G, rubbing elbows with celebrities, getting involved in the anti-bullying “We’re Kickin’ It Campaign,” and traveling the state promoting her “Maternal Wings” charity. This multi-tasker also does marketing to physicians for her husband’s Hands on Physical Therapy office, where she works on getting future referrals for his business.
Pavlinec’s charity, “Maternal Wings” was launched five years ago after her children were born. Rather than disposing of her unneeded baby items, or making a few dollars by selling them at a garage sale, she set out to find mothers in need to donate her items.
Pavlinec had called some local clinics to see if they could use the items and found out that the need for these items was huge. In speaking with Robin Aniboli, social worker at Ocean Health Initiative, Pavlinec saw how these items could make a great difference for mothers in need. She soon began collecting items from other moms she knew to donate to the clients of Ocean Health Initiative.
Not only does she give back to society, but she also strutted her stuff as a celebrity model at last years New Jersey Fashion Week and continues to do modeling at the age of 40. Looks like the housewives might have some serious competition since this housewife will be bringing sexy back with class.
Perhaps this pageant contestant will also bring world peace to the otherwise confrontational RHONJ turf.
